Victory Against Western Culture

Sweden's unemployment agency is guilty of discrimination for expelling a Muslim man from a job training program because he had refused to shake hands with a woman.

A Stockholm court Monday ordered Public Employment to pay $6,700 in damages to the immigrant from Bosnia. He had lost his jobless benefits when he was kicked out of the program.

Citing his faith, the man had refused to shake hands with a woman when he was interviewing him. The government agency said this behavior was part of the reason he didn't get the position. They excluded him from the program.

The court ruled it was discrimination because of his religion.
